Referring to the 'greater than...' & 'less than' signs, work out what number (1 - 5) each character represents. Characters with the same number also have something in common - can you work it out?
N.B.: To solve a Futoshiki puzzle, you need to make sure that 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 appear in each column and each row and that each number is, therefore, not duplicated in any row or column. The arrows tell you whether an adjacent number is greater or smaller than the number you are looking at.
If, when filling in Column 6, you know the link between characters with the same number but your answer won't work, please let me know your wording and I'll add it as an option. If totally flummoxed, you can bypass any of these by typing 'ANSWER 1', 'ANSWER 2', 'ANSWER 3', 'ANSWER 4' or 'ANSWER 5'. Hope you like the puzzle.
